Community Board rubbishes DCC plan to trash Clean-up Days

The Waikouaiti Coast Community Board has come out defending
"Community Clean-up Days" for the rural townships north of Dunedin.
City Council staff have suggested that the provision of rubbish skips
on a few weekends each year should be discontinued. "This has not
found political favour," says Chairperson Gerard Collings. "The Board
is adamant that this service is required for our community and must be
retained."

At its April meeting the Board resolved:
• to support the continuation of the Community Clean-Up Days
• to support an interim measure where green waste is separated out
from solid waste and other sorting opportunities are explored
• to have DCC staff review financial, social, cultural and
environmental implications reviewed
